Great value portable recorder
26.10.2014
This is a versatile little device with good sound quality given its price. I bought it to record band practices, but I've actually found a ton of other uses for it, using it to record gigs, as a field recorder, and even to record a drum kit for demo tracks.

Build quality is decent. It's all plastic apart from the grill, but it's acceptable. The important controls are available as buttons or dials, so it's very easy to use. Lights on the top indicate when its clipping, so you don't have to be constantly looking at the screen.

There is the option of Mid-Side(MS) on one side or XY on the other. MS lets you set the stereo width while recording, or even better, set it to RAW mode and fine tune the width later on your computer using a MS VST plugin. You can also choose 4-channel mode which records both MS and XY simultaneously to two separate stereo tracks (albeit with a shared preamp gain). When recording band practice I set it to 4-ch mode and place it in the middle of the room. Then when I get home I can balance the four channels on my computer.

There's a line in (it takes the place of the XY mics), you can monitor the recording with headphones, there are some basic compressor/limiter/filters, it has a tripod mount - the list goes on. This thing is amazingly good value.

The only downsides I've found are that it could do with an input pad as it's too sensitive for loud environments; I'd prefer the record light on the top; and the internal clock is poor, so you may have to spend a bit of time stretching and syncing if you are using it to record audio for a video or to be used in a multitrack mix with other audio.

Very good sound quality, easy handling
07.05.2014
I use the Zoom for 2 purposes:

- recording guitar and bass at home directly from my amp
- recording our band

Warning: I did not have any experience concerning recording music before, so this review might be helpful for you if you are a beginner too and are looking for equipment with easy and beginner friendly handling. I am someone who does not like too Play around with technical devices and many Options, I just want the thing to work and to record my stuff in the most convenient way.

Home recording works really good. Recording guitar seems to be easier than recording bass. Perfect for saving your song ideas for later. Sounds great and works much better for me than recording with a PC. Turn on your amp, press recording button, play your riffs, that's how I like it!

Band recordings sound very good as well, especially at lower volumes. Had some problems recording a very loud and muddy sounding stoner band, no problems at all recording a rock/pop cover band playing at lower volumes. I had some problems with muddy recordings, but i think that was because the band sound was quite muddy too. Hi Hat tends too be too loud, but we still need to experience with the perfect recording Position. Sound quality of bass guitar and bass drum could be better, but both are audible. Overall perfect for holding on to your song ideas, but of course not good enough for professional recordings.

Handling: Deleting data directly from the H2n can be annoying, because you have to open some menues. Some sort of erase button would be good. I did not use a lot of the functions like bass cut/boost etc., I just used Stereo and Surround and the Gain buttun to regulate the Signal strength. So the H2n has a lot of functions, but if you don't want to use them you don't have to and get a good Sound anyway. Some buttons seem to be a bit shaky, but no problems up to now. Recommended!

Perfect for recording ideas at home
Marcelo Vendramel, 31.03.2020
I'm using the H2n mostly to record guitar and voice at my house and I'm very satisfied with the sound quality and the easy handling. I'm also using it as a microphone connected to my computer which allows me to record track over track directly in Pro tools or Adobe Audition. The 360º recording option is impressive and gives you immersive soundtracks.

Packed with features and great value
Andrew J., 19.07.2013
The Zoom H2N is packed with features, compact, well built and has great battery life.

2 AA batteries powers this 4 condenser mic portable field microphone. Small enough to fit in a big pocket or with personal belongings in a bag, it ships with USB and zip up carry case. The 4 different mic settings are easily selected with a dial at the top, a flashing light indicates if the signal is clipping. Dynamics such as limiting and compression and high pass filters can be easily applied if the gain, controlled by a dial on the side, is not enough. A wide range of resolution recordings can be selected via the menus which are not immediately intuitive to navigate however with a little reading all becomes clear.

Getting started straight out of the box is simple with an on switch on the side and a big red record button and red light indicating record is selected. Again, the menu is not immediately intuitive when wanting to navigate the dynamics and similarly i needed to read the manual to access the folder menu and playback functions however the plug and play (it can be used as a session mic as well) option and USB folder menu make this device great value for money and extremely versatile.

The multitracker is a great tool for musicians of all levels. It really can be a ‘studio in a box’ replacing many of the components of a traditional studio.
